Days of Remembrance Resources


There are many ways to recognize Days of Remembrance in your city, school, workplace, or religious institution. The resources provided here are for the most common types of remembrance activities. However you plan to commemorate, it is important to ensure the activity is respectful of Holocaust survivors and victims and their suffering. 

Remembrance Events

Get help with all aspects of your event, from deciding on a format, to inviting a Holocaust survivor to speak, to promoting it in your community. Learn more

City or State Remembrance Proclamations

You can request that your mayor or governor issue a special statement declaring that Days of Remembrance will be commemorated in your city or state. A request, along with a sample proclamation, should be sent to the appropriate official several weeks before the observance. 

Ways to Commemorate on Social Media

Share personal stories of survivors and victims using the Identification Cards in our Holocaust Encyclopedia. Tweet a selection of victims’ names each day of Days of Remembrance using names from this list (PDF). Use #HolocaustRemembrance and #WeRemember in your tweets and on Instagram.
